We all have to wake up and go to bed, but we certainly don't all see the sunrise and sunset the same way. Some of us rise to bustling metropolises; others have windows looking out over rolling green farmlands. It's in these seemingly mundane moments that we spend time reflecting and processing our days.

Somfy Systems explored the emotions connected with these views by asking users around the globe for glimpses into their world, from India to Virginia, Pakistan to Brazil. The vantage points range from a 26th-story apartment to a ground-level room with a view of crows.
